One of the novel's major characters, he is described as: "Jubal E. Harshaw, LL.B., M.D., Sc.D., bon vivant, gourmet, sybarite, popular author extraordinary, neo-pessimist philosopher, devout agnostic, professional clown, amateur subversive, and parasite by choice." The main character of the novel, Valentine Michael Smith, founds a church and enshrines Harshaw as the patron saint, much to Harshaw's chagrin.
